Junk Free January: Update

Catch up on my Junk Free January: 30-Day Room Challenge posts

Last weekend I did a lot of work in our office.  I went through a lot of the "piles," organized, move the furniture around, and even hung a few things on the walls!  It's from from done, but I can see the potential and it makes me more excited to get it done.  As a reminder, here's what the room looked like when I started:

And here's what it looked like after some work over the weekend:

I love these wire baskets from Decor Steals.  They are perfect for holding papers and mail, rather than having them piled on my desk or kitchen counter.

 My favorite part is my little coffee bar area I'm working on.  Our kitchen is small and there is not room for a coffee bar in our kitchen, so I made a little spot for it in our office.  My Dad actually made the shelf 22 years ago for my mom and I talked her in to giving it to me, because I knew it would be perfect for hanging a few mugs over my coffee bar.

This free coffee printable can be found HERE.

Like I said, it's far from done, but it's getting there!  I'm happy with the progress I've made so far, and can't wait to get even more done this week.


  1. It is looking so good! I know it make you feel so much bettwr to have thinga organized and how awesome when we have time to get work done on our projects!

  2. Looking good! I like the idea of hanging baskets for mail and papers. Ours always just end up scattered on the kitchen counter.

  3. Oooh I love that little coffee bar! We have a similar set up in our kitchen and it's my favorite. I love buying pretty mugs, so why not display them?! Also, your office looks great! Those piles are getting waaaayyy smaller. I definitely have not done anything to diminish my junk spots this month... whoops!
